The rapid and aggressive expansion in the field of telecommunication has been central to focus in ensuring the quality of service and provide data transfer services. Consistent internet connectivity was a key motivation to identify the parameters in defining the offered and available bandwidth in the specification of 3G network. The authors have done an extensive measurement study on multiple commercial 3G networks. They have investigated the performance of those 3G networks in terms of their data throughput, latency, packet loss rate, packet error rate and apply these parameters in delivering cloud computing infrastructure services primarily towards electronic governance programs of state and central government bodies.
